Various Artists - Webbed Hand Presents ... The Darkdrone Mix [wh050]
Webbed Hand Records presents a selection of tracks by Webbed Hand artists regularly featured in streaming audio on Darkdrone Radio, a netstation which showcases the best of ambient, drone, and experimental recordings.
From the first few months of Webbed Hand's existence as a netlabel, Darkdrone Radio has recognized its potential as a source of excellent sounds. Darkdrone has regularly featured works by Webbed Hand artists in its rotation, right in there alongside more prominent artists such as Rapoon, Vidna Obmana, and Brian Eno.
To show our appreciation for this abundance of promotion and exposure, we're collaborating with Darkdrone to assemble this mix of new work and special edits of work already released.
If you have enjoyed the many past releases on Webbed Hand, you'll definitely like all of the music on Darkdrone Radio. Tune into their regularly updated audio stream.

Thank you for listening to this Webbed Hand Records release. Please visit the WHR homepage
to explore our complete catalog of experimental and ambient recordings. All of our music is free to download, but we'd be very grateful if you could make a small donation (via Paypal) to help with the costs of maintaining a netlabel.
Total running time for the whole album is just about 73 minutes. Quality minutes, I might add.

I admit I do have a few tracks on this compilation, so I'm biased, but I really like the collection as a whole. The tracks were selected and edited by Thomas Park (of Mystified and Darkdrone Radio fame), and the complete collection really flows nicely, just like Darkdrone radio. If you like dark mood music, this collection should be burned onto a CD-R and placed wherever you place your "frequent rotation" CDs. Yes, you should have a copy.
